I just registered for the Patriots Half in Williamsburg. Anyone else going to be doing this? It's my first half (had a conflict with Kinetic), so I'm wondering if there are any newbies who might be doing this one...
I'm planning to do it as my first half too! And I've talked some of my marathoning friends into doing it too. I only have a year of triathlon experience, so I was looking for one later in the season, to give me as much time as possible to prepare.
That was on a list of possible races that I was considering doing as well.
I am thinking about doing this race as well. It would be my 2nd half iron. Mussleman, last year, was my first.
I am tentatively planning on doing it too, as a newbie, for the exact same reason (schedule conflict with Kinetic). A HIM is my goal for 2011 and this would give me plenty of time to train/psych myself up...
I am in for Patriots - did Timberman last year.
This one is somewhat conveniently located and other than some last minute changes to the swim that happen from time to time, I have heard it's a good race. The ride and run sound like they would be good for a first time race of this distance. But, I've never done Patriots myself, so don't quote me on it.
Planning on doing this as my first as well - just have to get off my hiney and register.
Just signed up for it the other day, too. And it will also be my first half.
ditto! my first 1/2 as well. Will sign up before the prices go up again in June.
